The Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) is a government-funded last resort income support paid for qualifying residents in the province of Ontario who are above the age of 18 and have a disability. ODSP and Ontario Works are the two main components of Ontario’s social assistance system. The Ministry of Community and Social Services is responsible for ODSP and OW.
Unlike Ontario Works, ODSP does not require recipients to undertake employment-related activities like job searching or vocational training. This is determined through a subjective evaluation of four criteria that are defined within the ODSP Act:
20 Eglinton Avenue West
Suite 1400, P.O. Box 2003
127 Simcoe Street
